Cockatoos resting for the night.

Yesterday, I received a new smartphone attachment, which was supplied with a cheap 25mm EP. It was too cloudy last night, so I took images of these cockatoos gathering to rest overnight in a nearby tree. The images commenced in twilight and the last blurry image was taken in near darkness with a 5 second exposure.

The smartphone was attached to my Vixen 81mm.

Interesting result Bob. The options available to us these days makes experimenting with different techniques a lot of fun. The tunnel vision effect makes this shot different and those cockatoos look like giant white flowers on the tree. Nice one.
